Borussia Dortmund kicked off their Champions League season with a loss, but now they
have a chance to do better. On Wednesday Die Borussen will host Zenit at the Signal
Iduna Park in a match from Group F of the competition. Let’s take a look at it in our football
prediction betting tips today.
Borussia Dortmund are one of the big favourites in this group, but they started their season
in the competition in a dissapointing way. The 1997 winners and 2013 finalists travel to
Rome to face Lazio, but underperformed and suffered a 1-3 defeat. Borussia Dortmund’s
only goal in the match was scored by Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland, but it was
everything Die Borussen could have offered on this day.
We believe the manager Lucien Favre had a strategy in the last few days. During the
weekend Dortmund faced Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga and won the local derby in an
impressive way – 3-0. We saw that Favre rested some key players for the next Champions
League game. Marco Reus, Axel Witsel and Jude Bellingham started from the bench.
They will be rested, so don’t be surprised if they start the game against Zenit.
Speaking of Zenit the Russian club also lost their first game in the competition for the
2020/21 season. The champions of Russia hosted Club Brugge in their first match in
Saint-Petersburg, but suffered a 1-2 defeat. Sergei Semak’s team wasted a good
opportunity to get the three points there, so now they will try to do it in a much more
difficult situation at the Signal Iduna Park.
These are our football prediction betting tips today for the Champions League fixture
between Borussia Dortmund and Zenit on Wednesday. We expect some hot emotions at
the Signal Iduna Park between these two teams. We wish you good luck.
